Ford Freestyle vs Rivals: Spec comparison

Ford Freestyle has just been released into the market and we think it is a right time to compare it against its established Rivals like Hyundai i20 active and Honda WR-V. Just so you know, Ford freestyle is a new cross hatchback from the house of American automaker which is looking to tame the Indian market with its newest offering.

Design, Dimensions and Space

In terms of dimensions, there is nothing much to differentiate as these entire three cars stack below 4-meter of length. Cabin width is almost similar in case of Ford freestyle and Honda WR-V and it is the Hyundai i20 active which comes with widest 1760 mm cabin though it loses out to Honda WR-V in terms of height. On the crucial parameter of wheelbase, Hyundai i20 active again comes at the top while Ford freestyle matches it on 190 mm ground clearance. Honda WR-V has the biggest 363-litre boot while Ford freestyle comes with the smallest 257-litre trunk.
